Xenia Hill (the farther hill on the left side of Half Moon Island) from Kuzman Knoll, Livingston Island, with Greenwich Island in the background.

Xenia Hill is the rocky hill rising to 96 m in the northeast extremity of Half Moon Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica and surmounting McFarlane Strait to the north and east, and Menguante Cove to the south-southeast. The area was visited by early 19th century sealers operating from nearby Yankee Harbour.

The feature’s name appeared in a 2000 publication following Argentine ornithological research on the island, and in the 2005 and 2009 Bulgarian maps of Livingston Island.
